The Comox Valley Echo and the Courtenay Museum have teamed up to produce a Courtenay Centennial keepsake, a 50 page full colour magazine featuring museum and community images and historic stories. Local authors Ian J.M. Kennedy, Rick James, Judy Hagen and Christine Dickinson along with museum staffers Catherine Siba and Deb Griffiths have produced a keepsake magazine, Courtenay 100 Years of History 1915-2015 as a tribute to the Centennial Year.
“We say thank you to the Echo who have given generously on this project and done a great job and to the many businesses who have advertised. The proceeds from Courtenay 100 Years of History will go to museum programming,” said John Wilson, President of the Courtenay and District Museum Society.
With stories about downtown Courtenay, Joseph McPhee, Sub-Chasers on the Courtenay River, community celebrations, early transportation and more, the affordable magazine is something to take home from centennial celebrations that will be happening throughout the year. The magazines are also available at the museum and the Comox Valley Echo office. For more information contact the museum at 250-334-0686.
